A Treasure of My Own

A few months ago, a tenant in my building gave me a very special book. Some of you know that I write children's stories. Well, the tenant gave me an autographed copy of Danny Kaye's Around The World Storybook. I had never heard of it but I'd long been a fan of Danny Kaye's especially his role in...

Go, Cowboys, Go!

I'm so excited! Dallas came from behind and beat the Bills. I prayed all the way through the game - or actually the simulated game on ESPN's site since I don't have cable or satellite. But it was worth watching it even that way because it was an amazing game and I'm hoping the news stations air some... Sign in to see full entry.

The Birds?

The other evening when I was on my way home, I was sitting at the bus stop downtown and noticed a whole bunch of birds flying in swarms around the buildings. I had never seen anything like it. There were at least a couple of hundred small birds flying together from one building to the next and then... Sign in to see full entry.

My Cowboys Rule!

I don't know how many of you are football fans or who watched the Cowboys and Bears play last night but I'm one happy camper today. This is the first year in the past few years that I've been able to really focus on and enjoy football but I've got my prayers behind the Cowboys. Last night I had... Sign in to see full entry.

Reunion time...

This weekend was to be the celebration of my class's 30th year since we graduated from high school. Now, first of all, I went to boarding school so it was a bit different than most high schools where everyone lives in the same town and sees each other off and on for years afterward. At boarding...

What's Your Favorite Ice Cream?

Since this is summer time and it is so hot here in L.A., I find myself going through a lot more ice cream. I have a couple of favorites. One is Healthy Choice's Cappuccino Chocolate Chunk and another is Peppermint. Now, I love good peach ice cream in the summer time but I rarely am able to find it.... Sign in to see full entry.

I've Decided to Write A Book About My Family

Ever since Hurricane Katrina blew into my family's home towns of Pascagoula and Gautier, MS, I've been remembering things that my great aunt taught me about our family's history and it has me thinking about writing a book or a series of stories about my family.

Murder In My Building

Well, yesterday, I found out that one of the people in the hotel where I live was found murdered in his room the other day. I wouldn't have known about it except that I work for the hotel and someone told me. Evidently, he was stabbed to death, I guess. No one heard gunshots so unless they used a...

Do Certain Smells Remind You of Places or Events in Your Life?

Every time I smell this certain smell, it reminds me of my kindergarten. Since it's been 43 years since I was in kindergarten, I think that's pretty amazing. The really interesting thing is that I can't put my finger on what the smell is. I just know that ever so often I will smell it and it reminds... Sign in to see full entry.
